The library is back in business for using computers or for
studying. LRC Director Cyndi Andrews said of the move, "It was
like gathering all your relatives together and moving all of their
things five times, moving each item from shelves and returning
them all to the same shelves in the same order. We are all very
happy with the way it it is now."

Library emerges after reconstruction
ROBERT SCHOENBERG
Editor-in-Chief
The library in the Dye Learning
Center is open again after major re­
construction due to water intrusion
problems that developed almost
three years ago.
Because of limited space, only
about a fourth of the library’s books
were used in the temporary location
in a number of modular buildings
brought to the campus while recon­
struction was progressing.
Over the sumiper, library staff
moved 14,000 books from these
temporary modules and another
36,000 books and magazines in
boxes back to the Dye Learning
Center.
“It is wonderful to be back in
this building, wonderful for the
staff, faculty and the students.
Books are meant to be on shelves.
An inaccessible book is a waste of
money,’’said Cyndi Andrews,
Learning Resource Center Direc­
tor, who is in charge of the library.
She said all the library’s previ­
ous resources are now available as
well as some new ones like
EBSCO’s Academic Search in
Fulltext, a magazine and journal
article database available not only
at the library but also on the
internet for students and faculty.
New ASG officer visits
Washington, D.C. for first time
Christine Reed, a freshman at
Clackamas, took a trip to Washing­
ton DC two weeks ago that uncov­
ered many opportunities for her as
Legislative Officer for Associated
Student Government.
With David Ledoux, ASG Presi­
dent, and Mindy Brown, High
School Relations Coordinator, Reed
spent Sept. 16-20 at our nation’s
capital. Their trip was made in as­
sociation with the Committee for
Education Foundation. While she
was in DC, Reed kept a journal of
her activities and those who in­
spired her. Here are some high­
lights from the chronicles of her trip.
Sept.17: “ Today starts the begin­
ning of my first day in Washington
DC. First, we were on our way to
the National Education Association
Building for our morning confer­
ences. At the NEA building we at­
tended a seminar called, ‘The
Squeeze on Education.’ The semi­
nar was filled with many key
speakers from the Congress. The
most amazing part of the seminar
was the fact that it was about edu­
cation, and David and I were the
only students present. I couldn’t
believe that more students weren’t
there for such an important meet­
ing. There were about 200-300
people who attended and all of
them seemed to be over the age of
30. On the other hand, though, it
was really encouraging that adults
from another generation were tak­
ing a stand in support of education.
“After the seminar, the three of
uS headed towards the Senate and
House Buildings. We were deliv­
ering informational letters asking
them to participate in the Ameri­
can Student Association of Com­
munity Colleges next March... .We
spoke to Congresswoman Darlene
Hooley.. .she discussed with us her

To learn how to access this re­
source, she said, there would be
instructional classes offered
throughout October.
The damage to the buildings
was the result of water intrusion
beneath the exterior walls, which
rotted the wood framing of the
buildings. While under construc­
tion the buildings were closed for
use by the college and wrapped
in protective covers.
According to Peter Angstadt,
Dean of College Services, the
building re-construction has “met
all expectations.”
The other buildings involved in
the re-construction, Gregory Fo­
rum and Streeter Hall, have also
opened up again, and one building
at the Wilsonville campus opened
up last spring.
Since the buildings have opened,
most departments that were relo­
cated throughout the campus dur­
ing the reconstruction have relo­
cated yet again as new space has
opened up. For two years office
space was tight around campus
with many of the faculty doubling
up in cramped quarters.
The larger building now allows
comfortable space that was miss­
ing in the modules; there is now a
lounge area and reading areas with
couches to sit on.
Along with the library, the for­
eign language lab in Dye has also
reopened with a full complement
of services, classroom space and
computers for students.
The library staff is pleased to
be back in the building after
working for two years under very
limiting conditions. Leslie Ma­
son, a part-time circulation staff
member said that she was glad
to finally be able to accommo­
date more students with more
books.
“Students are more willing to
come over here. I think they were
scared away when we were in the
modules,” she said.
State candidates speak to
students at Gregory Forum
State candidates from Oregon
running for office this Fall have
been brought to the CCC cam­
pus for three days this week to
raise voter awareness.
Rock The Vote, a national or­
ganization, brings candidates to
colleges and universities to
speak to students and also en­
courages students to participate
in the election process by register­
ing them to vote.
“This has been our biggest year
for number of candidates who have
participated,” said ASG vice-presi­
dent, Bryan Fauntez.
The candidates are speaking at
Gregory Forum and have about 30
minutes to address the audience
and take questions.
